The most notorious sign of spring isn’t from a groundhog, a blooming crocus or the god-forsakenly premature daylight savings time in March. Obviously, the most reliable and anticipated sign of spring is the intro of the Ibex spring/summer line.
Yes, Virginia, you can wear Merino wool all year. Unless, of course, you resist highly breathable, easy-wicking, odor-resistant clothing in the warmer months? The key to comfort is choosing the proper lightweight, low micron blend for your lifestyle.
Spring 2013 is chock full of new fabrics, new styles and new colors for some of the Ibex classics you already know and love. Without further ado….
New Synergy Collection: Sustainable Activewear
Updated for spring with a lighter weight fabric (20-grams lighter if you’re counting), the new Synergy collection boasts a trifecta of fiber goodness. Merino wool provides next-to-skin softness and performance; GOTS-certified organic cotton offers supreme support and comfort; a hint of Lycra provides stretch.
This new blend is knit for movement, making it ideal for: yoga, climbing, running and any other way you like to push your body. Of course, it also embodies the Ibex design sensibility. So every performance attribute is matched by easy-going, versatile styling to roll directly from a Pilates class to a post-workout coffee with friends.
Bonus: All Synergy garments are sewn entirely in the USA in Ibex factories in Northern California.
Available in three styles for men and eight styles for women, asking us to choose our favorites is like asking us to announce our favorite children. Take a look here to choose for yourself. In the meantime, let’s just say you may see Ibex girl rocking Warrior II in the Synergy Criss Cross Tank and the Synergy Fit Pant.
New Rim Collection: Technical, Body-conscious Performance
The gear in our new Rim Collection has a technical edge to it – with a knit blend of 89-percent Merino wool and 11-percent stretch nylon. Rim garments are super lightweight and fit like a glove for high endurance activities like: trail running, racing, fast packing and cycling.
A tank, a “T,” and a full-zip for men match with a tank, “T,” half-zip and skort for women. Check out the men’s Rim Collection here and the women’s Rim tops and skort here. And check out the two new men’s Rim cycling jerseys here.
